We formally start the vaccination of health personnel in Morelos against COVID-19. They have given their best to take care of the population ”.
Subsequently, he stressed that the days with the highest levels of infections of contagions in the state had occurred in the month of December of last year, so made a call not to trust, or lower your guard, since the arrival of the vaccine does not mean that the state of health emergency is a matter of the past.
He asked the population to be patient and not stop carrying out measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. I affirm that the entire population will receive the vaccination, starting with those social sectors whose risk of suffering severe symptoms is greater.
“Later vaccines will reach all citizens, starting with the most vulnerable groups. I ask the population for patience and not to lower their guard; This is a great advance, but it does not represent the end of the contingency, let’s continue to take care of each other”, He explained.
Finally, thanked President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for the arrival of the first vaccines. This was his statement: “We thank the president @lopezobrador_ for his closeness with the people of Morelos and for considering our state among the first to receive these vaccines.”

Today in Morelos they are the first to receive the COVID vaccine. It is a great step, but it is not the last. Let’s not lower our guard!”He declared.
Marco Antonio Cantú Cuevas, Secretary of State Health, reported that 9,765 doses of vaccines were received, which are sufficient to inoculate all employees and physicians of the public health sector of the state.
